1We offer gifts of bread and wine
To Thee, O God, most high;
Send down on them Thy Holy Ghost,
Descending from the sky.
2With humble mind and contrite heart,
We come before Thy face;
Let all Thy bless├Ęd saints on high
Implore for us Thy grace.
3So shall the Holy Church on earth
With every grace be blest,
And so shall all the faithful dead
Obtain eternal rest.
4All glory to the Father be,
All glory to the Son,
All glory, Holy Ghost, to Thee,
While endless ages run. Amen.
Deuteronomy8:3And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.
